Just when you need it

I love it when a song comes on my MP3 player at just the right moment.

Today I was running on the treadmill, going along at my usual plodding pace when I had an impulse to push the speed up a little. Huh - not bad. I'll speed it up just a little more then. Ohhh-kay. Maybe a bit more. Or not...I'm supposed to be doing steady-state here, don't want to burn out.

So while I was finding excuses NOT to go faster, who should start singing but the Black Eyed Peas. THAT'S what I need - someone telling me to turn it up, turn it up, turn it up....come on Baby, just PUMP IT!

What could I do? I turned it up. The volume AND the tready speed.

If I keep this up, I might even manage that 4kms in a not-too-embarrassing time after all.
